Hi,

I worked in a project which was very interesting and I lerned a lot but I had no contract I invested my time because I wanted the project to succed but it failed financially then all was over

Now I want to apply for a proper job in germany and I dont know how to write it ...Contract? Charity work?

July 2011 – March 2012 (9 months)Europe

(Contract)
I developed Virtual Vision and Virtual Control projects from scrach

I worked with technologies like JMS, EJB 3.0, JBoss, MySQL, JSF 2.0 (using prime faces,
ice faces, rich faces), JQuery, Hibernate, Spring Security, RestFul, SCRUM, TDD.

This project liked authorities all around Europe and North Africa

Coordinated distributed teams around Europe

Any idea?
Regards

Isaac,
Did you get paid? If so, I think "contract work" is an appropriate description. You might not have had a formal contract, but you had an agreement that they would pay you for your efforts. If you didn't get paid, I would list it as "volunteer work."

Also, fyi - it looks like there is a typo in this sentence - "This project liked authorities all around Europe and North Africa " - linked maybe?

Hi

the project was developed for governments in Europe and north Africa, it means that after see the A version of the software they wanted participated.....I went to the countries and I talked with them then they liked the idea and start cooperating, we used to work using SCRUM we develop and they check it.

I had a contract as ranger in a campament the tittle was Monitor and inside my activities(take care of a campament) I did that because the town hall wanted to install that software inside campament and in others campaments in Europe. For example I had a contract for 1 month as ranger then I used to keep an eye and develop software, take requirements etc...the other month nothing(i had no contract) then I as volunteer used to work more on it becasue I wanted learn and make it a success after four years of activity the association which was resposible of all was freeze. (no money)

Thats it....

Thanks for the extra detail. In that case, I'd say "volunteer" when describing it. You don't want to say it was "contract" work and then fail a background check.
